The leaves smell like dark chocolate and fruit jam in the bag, in fact this might be the most chocolatey smelling Yunnan I’ve experienced thus far. Brewed up pretty dark. The interesting thing is on taste, it tastes like Yunnan tea, yet it also reminds me of a Darjeeling. I added a little sugar and now it tastes more like a good, robust Yunnan. Kind of molasses like. I’d order this again if the price is right.

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a young, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
